Ian McEwan's "Atonement"


For this Coffee and a Classic book box we were inspired by one of TIME magazine's 100 greatest English-language novels since 1923.

"Atonement" is a 2001 British metafiction novel written by Ian McEwan concerning the understanding and responding to the need for personal atonement.

Coffee and a classic atonement book box

As described by Lev Grossman:

"A novel in four set-pieces, each of which could be a novel in its own right. McEwan writes with uncommon delicacy and tenderness, but his plot is as powerful and remorseless as a walking artillery strike, and it finishes you off with what is, along with the secret of Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, one of the great plot reveals of the decade. Atonement is the story of an unspeakable crime compounded by a terrible error. What McEwan never reveals is whether the atonement of the title is ever truly possible."
